Springfield Armory is breaking from its mold of producing polymer handguns, 1911s, and AR-type-rifles to introduce a new bolt-action rifle, the Model 2020. Designed for long-range pursuits, whether PRS competition or hunting, the Model 2020 is available in four calibers, including 6 mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win., and 6.5 PRC. 

The Model 2020 comes loaded with features, including a premium, hand-painted, carbon-fiber stock built by AG Composites. The stock is hand-laid and pillar bedded for improved precision and repeatable accuracy. The stock comes in either adjustable or standard configurations, offers five QD mounts for carry in the field, and M-Lok attachment points for mounting of bipods and other accessories. The stock comes in either Ridgeline or Evergreen camo patterns. 

The carbon-fiber-sleeved barrel with subsurface fluting helps reduce weight and provides channels for cooling. The Waypoint is also available with a fluted, stainless steel barrel. 

No long-range rifle would be complete without a great trigger, and the Waypoint is no exception. The rifle comes equipped with Trigger Tech's adjustable Field Trigger, which is adjustable from 2.5-5 pounds and provides a crisp, clean break. The action takes AICS-pattern magazines. 

Prices on the rifle range from $1,699 to $2,399, depending on caliber, stock, and barrel options. For more information, check out SpringfieldArmory.com.

Comfort is a big part of daily carry, and it should be. If packing your favorite handgun feels like you are smuggling a shoebox (or an angry hedgehog), then you will squirm, shift and give away the fact that you are carrying. Hot weather makes it even worse, as light clothing offers less in the way of concealment. When EDC becomes too much of a hassle, some just leave it at home.
